Description

  • 540 2-Stroke Engine
    The proven 540 2-stroke engine returns to the North American market in this utility-minded snowmobile. The engine has been updated to meet EPA guidelines. In addition, Yamaha's engine engineers improved midrange torque and reduced fuel consumption by nearly 25 percent.
  • Heated Mikuni TM33 Carburetor
    The heated Mikuni TM33 flat slide carburetor delivers crisp throttle response. Small dual electronic heater coils embedded in the carburetor body stabilizes idle speed and reduces plug fouling.
  • Dual-Bulb Headlight
    As part of the modern styling project, the VK540 now features a dual-bulb headlight. The new headlight throws more light on the trail than the previous single bulb design, and is fully integrated in the overall styling cues.
  • Multi-Coil Stator Ring Design
    The new VK540 has a large, multi-coil stator ring design to develop over twice the electrical output of the previous model. The 400 watt output is used to power the new carb heaters, new twin-bulb headlight, the hand warmers and other accessories.
  • NEW Riding Position
    The seat on the VK540 is 60mm taller than the previous VK540, which elevates the rider and delivers a comfortable posture for long days in the saddle. New high density foam also improves ride comfort.
  • Large Capacity Fuel Tank
    Enjoy extended range and expanded work capability with a large fuel tank. The tank boasts of a capacity of 11.6-gallons. Combine that with the new cleaner-running engine and you'll see nearly double the range on a single tank of fuel, as compared to the previous VK540 models.

Performance

  • NEW Clutch Calibration
    Yamaha engineers developed a new clutch calibration to maximize the increased midrange torque, while keeping the sled's utility application in mind. The result is a setup that has very smooth engagement and roll out, without sacrificing overall operating performance.
  • Camoplast 1.5 Cobra WT Track
    The primary purpose of the 20" x 154" x 1.5" Cobra track is to fully maximize all available snow with confidence-inspiring deep snow floatation and powerful pulling force. The 1.5" lug is perfect for low-speed or high-load situations that utility sleds often function in.
  • Three Speed Transmission
    The Hi/Lo transmission with reverse is workhorse one minute, and a versatile trail cruiser the next. With a simple to use manual actuated lever, you can select from “normal” high range to low range to pull heavy loads below 50mph.

Handling

  • High Flotation Skis
    Wide skis deliver added flotation when traveling off-trail, while an engineered keel provides predictable handling and easy to steer manners.
  • TSS Front Suspension
    TSS for snow mobility and simplicity.

Comfort

  • NEW Tunnel Design
    The new tunnel design includes large snow evacuation holes on running boards with traction. The tunnel is built out of lightweight, high-tensile steel to keep the VK540's legendary rugged durability in the toughest conditions.
  • Pro Comfort Suspension
    This dual-shock, fully coupled suspension features a simple and effective flip-lever torsion spring adjustment to quickly adapt the suspension for one-up or two-up riding, or for hauling a heavy payload. A 40mm, High Pressure Gas (HPG) shock provides exception control, fade resistance, and maximum work capabilities.
  • Expansive Under-Seat Storage
    With a hinged, flip-up seat, the VK540 exudes its work ethic at every turn. The large under-seat storage touts an integrated tool kit and room for much more. The seat's hinge pins are easy to pull for quick seat removal to speed loading and unloading.
  • Standard Electric Start
    Seamless and easy to use electric start delivers instant and hassle free starts, no matter the weather, eliminating the need for an “old-school” pull rope.
  • Standard Tow Hitch
    In addition to a host of on-board creature comforts and storage, a standard factory rear mounted tow hitch is at the ready for additional gear or occasional light-duty work.
  • Utility Inspired Styling
    A fresh look for the legendary proven VK540 is both modern and tough. Extensive development went into a new shroud and duct work to minimize engine bay snow ingestion. This is especially important in extreme cold markets where the fine snow crystals will penetrate every nook and cranny and can create ice build up.
  • LED Taillight
    The high-intensity LED taillight/brake light is lighter and brighter than a traditional incandescent design, and delivers a significantly longer lifespan.
  • Protective Windshield
    A wide, tall, wrap-around style windshield delivers greater protection from the elements as well as unsuspecting tree branches and limbs. The windshield has been wind tunnel tested to reduce unwanted negative swirl and deliver a greater “pocket” of comfort for both driver and passenger.
  • Workforce Mirrors
    Functional mirrors tout a large viewing area, making it easier to see what lies behind. The mirrors are mounted on the interior side of the Protective Windshield, shielding them from potential damage.
